Gitmo Heart

too many wounds
too many scars
you’ve learned to not trust anything
except what’s in the stars

the shades are drawn
no candle lit
you hold the dark and tattered page
on which your life is writ

no one but you
can parse the scrawl
in which you’ve tortuously scribed
your voluntary fall

the shackling bound
the lock secure
around your head the blindfold harsh
your fingers knotted sure

and victimless –
no foreign hand
sequestered what is locked away –
you’ve lost what you command:

    I like the “finality” of this… very pragmatic. Reminds me of an elementary school I went to in Ohio.

  • LOL…thanks. It’s actually an old mill in northeastern Connecticut.
